News reporter came up with questions to find out how much does Jimmy really knew about it. There were Yankees questions, boroughs questions and of course Statue of the Liberty related questions, and Jimmy well, he did the best he could.

Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon.
In October 2015, during a show Jimmy announced the cool news of The Tonight Show getting its own theme park at Universal Studios Florida. After seven seasons the long-running franchise would get a theme park set to open in 2017.
In the attraction, Jimmy takes his hosting duties to the next lever and takes us on a crazy ride around New York. It’s a high-tech ride that takes passengers, comfortably situated in seats, on a crazy race against Jimmy. The ride obviously includes piped-in pizza smells to make it legit.
What to expect from the race
The experience starts with a tour that will make people think they’re actually at the show. The attraction is housed inside a replica of 30 Rockefeller, where the actual show is taped. On the first floor, there’s a museum of the past Tonight Show hosts, Jay Lenon, Conan O’Brien and Johnny Carson. There you get to see their desks with the real things they had on it.
Just before you get to the race, there’s a hangout are where you can find all sort of things, including #thepanda dancing around.
Then you go for a crazy ride which is like watching a movie only with movable floor and hydraulic seats to make you feel the adrenaline. There’s a safety rap with The Roots and Jimmy to introduce you to the ride. Along with Jimmy then you go to explore the greatest city of all New York.
